Poetry Contest: Horrored History
Horrored History Results
Grand prize: DC$ 15
The rules were given as the following:
I want a non fiction poem that has something to do with horrid past events or people. Serial killers, particularly brutal leaders (Hitler comes to mind, but others are most welcome,) gruesome battle scenes, etc... the worse, the better. Just remember to be creative (within the realms of the historic event.)
1. No vulgar language (unless it's a quote)
2. There is no set rhyme scheme, but it must rhyme in some form or fashion throughout the poem. The more creative the rhyme scheme, the better.
And...that's it as far as rules go. Other poetic elements are strongly suggested though (Assonance, Alliteration, Metaphor, Simile, Etc...) The better the poetic element, the greater your chances of winning!
